Stock M suspension right now with 215/40ZR up front and 245/35ZR in the rear Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110 XL.

The wheels are V718s 18x8.5 and 18x9.5.

My car is filthy right now because it's been raining and I hate to post pics of it looking bad but I'll snap some photos when I get off work today for ya. Anything you want to see in particular?

I'm planning on lowering it with Eibach Pro springs next week. I'm pretty stoked about it. I just got the rims in the mail and put on Tuesday but I love them and I've gotten lots of compliments already.

18" V710s or 19" V718s

I think that the V718s/VB3s in 18" are a little too spokey.

Are the 710s more concave in the middle than the 718s, or are they the same(ish)?
